To promote fish farming in Haryana, the State Government has set up a Fish Seed Farm with an investment of Rs. 36 lakh near Ottu Weir in Sirsa district.

The farm is meant to not only fulfil the demand for seeds from fish farmers of Sirsa but also export fish seed to other districts, an official spokesperson said on Friday. During April-August this year, 28.15 lakh fish seeds were prepared by this seed farm, he said.

Farmers and youth in adjoining areas have started considering fish farming as a profitable business, he said.- PTI
